Bible Quote 5:12 Now we ask you, brothers, to respect those who work hard among you, who are over you in the Lord and who admonish you.
5:13 Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other.
5:14 And we urge you, brothers, warn those who are idle, encourage the timid, help the weak, be patient with everyone.
5:15 Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always try to be kind to each other and to everyone else.

5:16 Be joyful always;
5:17 pray continually;
5:18 give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
5:19 Do not put out the Spirit's fire;
5:20 do not treat prophecies with contempt.

5:21 Test everything. Hold on to the good.
5:22 Avoid every kind of evil.
5:23 May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
5:24 The one who calls you is faithful and he will do it.
5:25 Brothers, pray for us.

5:26 Greet all the brothers with a holy kiss.
5:27 I charge you before the Lord to have this letter read to all the brothers.
5:28 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
